It resembles small theropods like the deinonychus, coelophysis
and dromaeosaurus - extinct 65 million years.
The team examined rocks and fossils that come from a location known as Ghost Ranch, an area noteworthy for a number of Triassic dinosaur discoveries, including the early meat-eaters Coelophysis
It is related to Coelophysis
which lived approximately 203 to 196 million years ago in what is now the southwestern part of the United States of America.
And lastly, I would NOT make friends with a T-Rex and a Coelophysis
dinosaur because they are scary and mean.
For 150 million years the dinosaur ruled; 1982, dated the Petrified Forest National Park's first traces of dinosaur's existence with the recovery of a Coelophysis
in the upper Chinle.
1994): Geology and taphonomy of the Coelophysis
quarry, Upper Triassic Chinle Formation, Ghost Ranch, New Mexico.
Though some dinosaurs, such as a theropod called Coelophysis
(D), did live in the late Triassic, they did not rule the landscape, Existing non-dinos included large armored herbivores called aetosaurs (C and E), mammal-like reptiles known as dicynodonts (A), land-dwelling ancestors of today's crocodiles (B), salamander-like amphibians (G) and other aquatic predators (F and H).
Se dividen en: Coelophysidae, mas antiguos, con grandes cabezas en forma de cuna y garras en las manos--como el Coelophysis
, Syntarsus, Halticosaurus, Procompsognathus, Saltopus y el Segisaurus--, y Dilophosauridae, como el Dilophosaurus, el Dracovenator y el Zupaysaurus.
and Syntarsus, had more bite power in the back of the mouth, but were weak, fast biters with their front teeth and Ostrich-like dinosaurs such as the Velociraptor possessed weak but devastatingly speedy bites, according to study author Manabu Sakamoto.
It's hard to tell from footprints exactly what it was, but it was similar to a Coelophysis
, a small meat-eater common in the Triassic period.
The ilium of the Tucumcari-area find is significantly larger than an ilium from an average-size coelophysis
, New Mexico's state dinosaur, and the shape is quite different, Hungerbuehler said.
Okay, maybe it's not likely that Coelophysis
could really learn to play the piano.
